Figure, as prodded by Justin, we need something to replace the logo:
Image
So I'm throwing it open to those with artistic talents to come up with an appropriate replacement. Note, the color difference is because the current image is somewhat transparent, so it will be lying on top of the bar at the top, and should blend nicely with that. Size should be close to the current one, and we should avoid using any "official" logos, etc. since I really don't want some over-zealous lawyer at MLB getting on our case.

Shall we say, two weeks for entries? I'll close on September 26th, pick the best entries (if necessary) and then we can have a poll for the winner. Post them as replies to this topic. No actual "prize", beyond the enormous satisfaction of seeing your logo all over the site! :-)

It's pretty plain, but I gave it a shot. The background is semi-transparent, so it should blend nicely with the red banner at the top.

The snake scales look cool.

I really like this idea, and would love to see how it looks over the red with the semi-transparent background.

Looks good. It might look a little awkward if the snake skin is only in that one rectangular area. It's hard to say without seeing it, though. What are the chances we could do something like having the entire background having that snake skin image (with the reddish background also) so that it shows some on the borders of the site? Just a thought, and it might be too much if there are still some board members using dial up.

I was going to respond to Dewberry's PM, but since it's here I'll respond here. It's a good look. My only problem is that DBBP is displayed directly above Diamondbacks Forum, but DBBP is an abbreviation for Diamondbacks Bullpen. It does mention on the right side that this is a forum, so swapping in Bullpen for Forum on the left side would let users know what DBBP stands for while the forum explanation remains on the right side. :P

I like the dewberry look as well... Some minor changes that TAP suggest make sense as well...

Ok, so I'm not sure about the full size banner having a snakeskin, since the background is just the same smaller image repeated, so I'd probably have to find a different snakeskin background. (and the one I'm using is royalty free). But I expanded the canvas of the image, and gave the edges sort of a tattered look, so that it doesn't have the hard, rectangular edges anymore.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Let's keep Dewberry's but change the font on Baldys and use that for "Diamondbacks Bullpen" combine the two.

What if you made the edges of the snake scales gradually blend in with the background?
